Sole-full store gets new home

A star-studded celebration marked the recent opening of Johnston & Murphy, an upscale men’s footwear and accessories brand and retail store at the Hill Center. The event —an evening of shopping, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and music — was hosted by broadcaster Mike Keith, “the Voice of The Titans.”

Titans’ linebacker Keith Bulluck was on hand to mingle with guests and sign autographs, and a portion of the party’s proceeds from sales went to the Keith Bulluck Believe and Achieve Foundation. The football player’s eponymous organization raises money to aid foster care groups in middle Tennessee and New York. Johnson & Murphy also donated shoes to Soles4Souls, a nonprofit that collects shoes to give to people in need, in honor of Bulluck.

After years at a much smaller location at The Mall at Green Hills, Johnston & Murphy’s new 2,496 square-foot location has allowed it to include a full range of products including footwear, apparel, outerwear, luggage, small leather goods and other accessories.
